Swiss Chard & Spinach Salad
Horta vrasta for my menu, in Greek meaning simply boiled greens. Swiss chard is one of my favorite vegetables because it’s a tasty and nutritious green vegetable. The leaves are mild flavored, similar to spinach.
2 bunches Swiss chard (white ribbed or a mixture of colors like rainbow, red, yellow about 2 pounds)
4 cups baby spinach
1/2 small green cabbage, shredded
1 can cannelloni (BPA Free Lining) drain and rinse
1 tablespoon 7 spices
Sprinkle fruity olive oil
1/2 juice of lemon
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Serve sprinkle dried Pichuberries and avocado
